Reading International is pleased to present ‘reading in Reading’, a series of events and exhibitions by David Raymond Conroy, Ghislaine Leung, Cally Spooner and Jesper List Thomsen, who have been invited to respond to Reading through the use of various narrative structures, closely related to aspects of the town’s contemporary culture. Collectively, the artists have written a ‘Superstructure’, which will host the group’s activities and operate as a tool to devise a number of expanded readings between October 2017 and April 2018. The ‘Superstructure’ launched on Saturday 7 October 2017 at 1.00pm at Reading Central Library’s external amphitheatre. The programme has commenced from this point onwards.

In partnership with Hogarth Productions.
